Trees in the urban forest provide communities with countless benefits. However, managing this community asset falls on public service departments that are often under-staffed, multitasking, and operating on very tight budgets. Understanding the impact of tree decline and failure and how to manage the resulting risks is key to building and funding a safe and well-rounded community forestry program. 

This practical symposium will help you understand the risks resulting from tree decline and failure and plan to manage trees on public spaces to protect people and property. 

The session will be useful and valuable for county, township, municipal, and park district managers and decision-makers.
